Situated on the banks of the River Thames, Gravesend is a town with a surprising history, including the fact that it is the resting place of Princess Pocahontas. The town is a mix of mainly Victorian and Edwardian buildings with many linked to it's former role on the River Thames - it still has two operational piers.
Harmer Street is said to have been designed by an architect from Bath and the adopted style is plain to see. At the end of the street is an historic clock tower which has recently been restored.
The town is well connected with good rail links to Stratford International in 12 minutes and Central London in 24 minutes. Eurostar trains from nearby Ebbsfleet International Station reach Paris in just over two hours and Brussels in one and a half.
The road network is also very good with the A2 and the M25 in easy reach.
The town also has good shopping and leisure facilities and it also benefits from the nearby Bluewater Shopping Centre.
